Welding Rod Extracts Broken-Off Bolts
Dennis E. Heck, Pendleton, Ind.: "Many people do not know there's a special welding rod on the market for extracting broken-off bolts. Called X-TRACTALLOY (X-ERGON Co., 1570 East Northgate Blvd., P.O. Box 152102, Irving, Texas 75012; ph 800 527-7782 or 214 438-0306), it's ideal for welding a nut to a broken bolt because it flows down into the threads but won't adhere to the equipment that you're pulling the bolt out of. You simply lay it on top of the broken bolts, strike an arc on the bolt, and fill the nut. The rod is available in 3/16, 5/32, 1/8, 3/32 and 5/ 16 in. dia. Sells for around $50 per pound."
